What is it connected to ? ? It looks like a custom / one of a kind.

its for a laser scanner you might find in a local store to scan items

You’ll need to get oem parts that does not appear to be a standard connector.

Contact the company that made the barcode scanner.
Most handheld scanner are for PC connections to a Point of Sale computer and use a generic connector that plugs into the back of the PC.

That’s something proprietary or very uncommon

You can start looking at Digikey .
If the part is standard, they will have it.

Isn’t that a “helifino” connector?

~@Yetanotheruser If it is, Digikey has them in stock.
